Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - June 25, 1923, Woodland, California ISSUED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY WOODLAND, CALIFORNIA, MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 25, 1923 ESTABLISHED 1877 I mm CUT BY SACK NEEDLE Grant Kellaway, member of a harvesting crew on the Clarence Day estate, southwest of Wood- land, came near losing his life this morning when a mere piece of needle with which he was sew- ing sacks snapped and cut the artery over the left temple, caus- ing him to bleed profusely and seriously. Although only a piece of wire it is stated from the Woodland santiariurn that the force of the blow was such that it produced a deep gash over the temple. Kellaway was rushed to the sanita- rium here, his entire body covered with blood oozing from the wound. The injury was such, however, that the flow could be quickly stopped and the cut tissues brought together, bfit it will be a long time before the injured man regains his strength as a result of the great loss of blood. I Girls Make Serious Charges Against Five Gangsters What the police believe to be a Sac- ramento parallel to the notorious "Spud" Murphy gang activities in San Francisco is being investigated by au- thor-ties and the Sacramento district attorney today. Five men are under arrest. The investigation is based on tales of terrible brutality told by two young -women, Mrs. E. Brizendine, 16, San Jose; and Jean Gardiner, 24, who taken into custody at 520 L street last night when the five men were ar- rested. The milder portions of the charges made by the girls are that the five men forcibly gave them liquor and hy- podermic injections of drugs. The girls' bodies bear marks and bruises that the police say substan- tiate the gruesome charges. Newcomers The men are said by the police to come to the Pacific coast recent- ly from Oklahoma. They had been in just a few days. The men are listed by the police as Palmer Eng- land, Henry Johnson, D. G. Robertson, Lehman Esper and Albert Pino. Kanthlener Enrolls For U.C. Instruction; Joins Esparto Faculty "Dead Rattler Sends Youth To The Sanitarium When is a snake dead? That is the question which will always puzzle fourteen-year-old Stanley Rooney of Hungry Hollow district, who was rushed to the Woodland Sanitarium last night to be treated for a rattlesnake bite on the back of the right hand. This morning the young sufferer was believed to be out of danger, but the reptile sank his fangs well into the flesh and as it was some time before he received skilled medical treatment, it may be a day or so before all danger is passd. The youth fought and killed, so he thought, a monster rattlesnake, according to thel report from the Woodland sanitarium. Like the courageous hunter who attaches scalps to his belt, young Rooney started to dismember the snake by cutting the rattles from his tail, as a souvenir of conquest. It developed that the snake was far from dead and with the first touch of the knife it revived and struck at its enemy. First aid was rendered at the Rooney place in Hungry Hollow, but was not suffi- cient to keep the poison from reaching the blood. The boy is the son of Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Rooney. IS SENT TO JULY 4TH Irving Kanthlener of Esparto left today for Berkeley, where he will take a six weeks course in physical train- ing, with a view of joining the faculty j of the Esparto Union high school next term. Kanthlener has been offered the position. The course at the University of California includes instruction in how to coach football, basketball and track, j At baseball Kanthlener needs no tu- toring. For five and a half years he j was a member of the Pittsburg Pirates as pitcher and pinch-hitter. His arm went back on him and so he had to retire from the game, after making j an unsuccessful attempt to recover his form with the San Francisco Seals. Kanthlener is playing with the 'Woodland club in the Sacramento Val- ley League and will return hore for next Sunday's game. He has a small farm near Esparto. He will continue to run the farm in addition to handling his coaching job at the Esparto high school. A monster display of fireworks will feature the Carlton Club's observa- tion of the Fourth of July in Wood- land. Forrest Laugenour, chairman of the committee on arrangements, returned from San Francisco yester- day, purchasing worth of fire- works, including set pieces and the like, which will be set off the Elks' lot, Bush and College streets, be- ginning at 9 o'clock Wednesday night, July Fourth. To amuse the children a contract has been closed for a merry-go-round which will be installed on the Ross C. Wilson lot at the corner of College street and Lincoln avenue. One of the latest amusement circles will be pro- vided for the occasion. Robert Harlan will have charge of the cabaret concession, which will be a dance platform for'the amusement of those who are not otherwise inter- ested in other features of the club celebration. Laugenour states that the Carlton boys will start in tomorrow placing tents and getting ready for their cellent and diversified program, planned to celebrate the opening of the new swimming pool in the rear of the Carlton Club on Elm street. Frank Sherman, arrested at Knights Landing by Sheriff J. W. Monroe early last year on a charge of syndicalism, later tried and convicted in Superior Judge W. A. Anderson's court here, with C. C. McDonald prosecuting, has gone on a rampage in San Quentin, to which prison he was sent by Judge An- derson, and is now in solitary confine- ment with bread and water as a diet. iThe following dispatch concerning the 1 strike of the I. W. W.'s at San Quen- tin explains the cause of the harsh 'treatment of agitators and Reds in ,the state institution: Twenty-one I. W. W. prisoners are being held in solitary confine- ment at San Quentin prison, fol- lowing their attempted strike Fri- day, when they refused to work in an effort to force release of Wil- liam Flannagan, convict of Sacra1- mento, who had been placed in the dungeon for refusing to work in the jute mill. All of the men are serving sen- tences of from 1 to 14 years for criminal syndicalism. Friday Flannagan quit work in the jute mill and announced that he was through. S. L. Randolph offered him a chance to go back to work, but he refused. Randolph Johnston, who told him that he would either have to return to duty or be confined in the dun- geon, where he was put on a bread and water diet. Word of Flannagan's punish- ment spread, and twenty-five oth- er convicts, among whom was Frank Sheridan of Woodland, thirteen employed in the jute mill and twelve in other parts of the prison refused to do any further work. They notified prison au- thorities that they would continue their strike until Flanagan was re- leased from the dungeon. The dungeon would not hold twenty-five men, so Warden John- ston ordered the men placed in their cells in solitary confinement until they decided to call off their sympathy strike.
